I have been asked to promote the link to the website: www.mgb-register.org will take you there and thence to the Technical forum for all your questions and queries. It will also provide a link to the E version of the newsletter. It’s well worth a browse around when management hasn’t got you organised painting the kitchen or whatever!
Thinking about things to do in lockdown I was inspired by a delightful model of an MG Varitone Magnette that was in their last Register newsletter enough to set about making a model, 1:43 scale in metal, of my own MGB GT. The cutting of the sunroof provided an afternoon’s entertainment and attempting a good colour match and finish is proving interesting. Still, it’s keeping me entertained
and out of the way. Until next month, stay safe!
